the boys in the movie may seem to have good intentions, but when you really think about it, is reading a dead girl's diary, stealing their makeup to smell it, watching a girl having sex through binoculars, etc really a sweet, innocent thing to do? So yes, the Lisbon sisters are stalked, which is the reason for their suicides as all they wanted was a friend, but instead were sexualised further and stalked even after they died.

The father is seen drinking/spacing out while mourning Cecilia's death. I can only imagine he was probably drinking quite heavily throughout the movie, however not much of it is shown. Lux also drinks underage at prom under the influence of her date Trip.

It depends what your definition of torture would be. (spoiler) Their mom grounds them in the house indefinitely, barring them from any interaction with the world outside of their house, and burns their records.

I wouldn't say excessive, but in the first scene where Cecilia is shown in the bath after slitting her wrists, the water is pink from blood and her white dress is stained slightly pink, a few drops of blood from her wrists is shown as she's being carried out by paramedics. She does survive this first attempt though.

It's not a horrific ghost depiction. It's just one of the sisters that died being seen by people a few times. She's not mutilated or scary looking- just looking as she was when she was alive.

Not necessarily explicit hate speech, but all boys in the movie refer to women as objects and sexualise them. For example:
"The OBJECT of his desire was..."
"Can't I feel one of them up just once?"

A neurodivergent kid is made to show his "weird" and "funny" behaviour as entertainment. They aren't necessarily bullying him when they do it but it's very iffy behaviour on their part. Clearly, Cecilia (one of the people in the group of kids watching this boy) is unamused by their idea of "funny" and she's upset that the world sees women and neurodivergent people as entertainment.

All the women in this movie are extremely objectified to the point that they get so distraught by it, among other things too, that they are driven to suicide.

All the girls are dead, but the boys still continue to miss the point and objectify them more, The parents leave the house crying, and the boys make a toast to the Lisbon sisters, claiming that they "loved" them. There is no sequel and no closure. No one read the room and decided to stop being perverted and the neighbourhood remained more or less the same, apart from their decline in car sales thanks to Lux's suicide method and the empty house that used to be the sanctuary of the 5 Lisbon sisters, who's lives were taken thanks to this cruel world.
